I'm curious...what is your favorite food complement to beer?
I would think anything greasy and/or salty in general would do. But I'm curious about specific foods in your guys' experience. I'm hoping to get some suggestions and recommendations so I get ideas for this summer.
crush yah butt with these electricsSsSs
also sry for clipping, i recorded this one with the volume too high and didn't feel like redoing it
I'm traveling/backpacking. Sometimes I get bored or stuck in somewhere so I got an Acer Aspire Switch minilaptop/tablet combo to entertain me. I installed Renoise on it because I got the license already. It's a pretty heavy software for the low spec thing but I can make some simple things. So, out of boredom I just bang out some tracks, mostly with the default instruments which I sometimes edit to my own tastes. Decided to upload some of them to Soundcloud for storage and post here.
I'm mastering with my earplug headphones so the mixing is probably pretty terrible..
I'm calling this the CybeerTraveler 2015 series after the facts that it's futuristic and I drink lots of beer.
TL;DR: I'm traveling with a cheapo laptop and making tracks when bored.
STEAK AND ALE PIE WITH MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY
500g diced steak
2 carrots, finely diced
2 sticks celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 large onion, finely diced
about 20 baby button mushrooms
2/3 pint beef stock
2/3 pint good ale or stout
fresh parsley and thyme
1 tbsp smoked paprika
puff pastry (i used premade)
white wine vinegar to deglaze
an egg, whisked, to glaze
toss the steak in flour and season with salt and pepper, then brown it and set aside
make a mirepoix - finely diced carrots, celery, onion, and garlic
put it in the same pot the steak was in, sweat in more butter for five minutes, then deglaze the pan with the white wine vinegar and scrape up dat goodness.
add the parsley, thyme, and mushrooms and cook for another minute or so
add 2tbsps flour, two tbsps sugar, and 1 tbsp smoked paprika, and stir until the flour is golden brown
add the ale and simmer for a minute, then add the stock and re-add the steak and simmer for about an hour.
meanwhile, grease the pie tray with butter and roll half the pastry out and line the tray with it, with an overhang.
reserve some of the broth so the filling isn't sloppy (i use it for gravy for the mash), then add the filling, and brush the edges of the pie with egg wash
roll out the rest of the pastry and top the pie. trim off the excess pastry, crimp the edges of the pie, glaze well with egg wash, and make a few slits in the middle of the pie.
into the oven with it for an hour at 200C/gas 7!

So I bought it on a whim, having loved the chocolate oak-aged Yeti, and this is definitely its equal. Chocolatey, dark, sweet... absolutely wonderful beer, that even a few of my friends who don't like beer seem to like.
Anybody else tried this magnificent drink?
